    What about MLD? Or you may ask @edh , his cuben stuff looks like Polycryo !!!:biggrin: More reasonable prices @ Bear Paw Wilderness Designs,but also not that high-end quality.

    The Zpacks ones out of 1.0 oz cuben are pretty good & reasonably priced, various sizes......then you've got a good excuse to add to the cart to save/ combine postage.:angelic:
    I had them make a couple of custom ones 2.1m * 0.7m = $100 each

    Not seen one of those before...What's wrong with a razor blade and a thick hardback book

    I use one of these; I made it to fit in the Unna clone and Duomid by using cuben sticky tape to make own clip in attachments.
    V.Lt weight.
    can set up high enough in a single skin shelter to keep draughts at bay.

    Should have said that the Zpacks bath tubs don't have any corner struts......but it would be easy to add them using 3 - 4mm CF rod & some CF self adhesive tape.

    A blackview 6000/7000 phone, depending on long term reviews. Anybody got one, heard anything good or bad?

    Rocker legs + mountain slopes + wet grass = Fun but with the chance of disaster

    My thought was - "great ! with a rocker on it the legs won't sink into the 'soft ground/bog' quite so fast" :whistling:
    - I guess we (mostly) camp in different terrain :biggrin:.

    A one person winter dome tent on a budget.1.8kg. A bit weighty but double cross poles could be a winner. For £160.

    i used to have a solar one in the late nineties, pretty bomber til you got a side wind, this covers that. mildly curious . :cigar:

    I'd be interested to know the length of the inner. For some reason best known to themselves, Terra Nova supply the length on the diagram of the Helm Two but not the Helm 1. And they use the same photo for both.

    i hadnt noticed the one photo for both. rather daft. think i'll wait a bit, watch one of their boring 'this is how a tent goes up........and this is how it goes down' videos.
    mind you its not all bad, the woman who's their chief erector does keep ones focus .:inlove:

    I reckon the inner on the Helm 1 will be around 10cm shorter than the 2, but they want you to make the assumption it'll be the same...
